“Everyone knows that once a lemur takes a liking to you, there is not much that can be done about it.” So begins How to Lose a Lemur by Frann Preston-Gannon, story of a boy who encounters a lemur one day in the park. The lemur follows him and, despite the boy’s best efforts, will not leave him be. In fact, the lemur is joined by other lemurs, who all just want to play! The boy tries all kinds of things to lose the lemurs. He hops a train leaving town, flies off in a hot air balloon, climbs the highest mountain in the snow, and more. Soon, he realizes he is far from home and lost. Luckily, the lemurs can show him the way back home! With big, bright illustrations, this book is perfect for reading with little ones who will enjoy finding the lemurs on each page and imagining the adventures the narrator is having on his quest to lose the lemurs.
